Did someone really get their NYC launch party Bold? Can this be confirmed? So far I haven't heard a thing about them being sent out.

... it is possible that attendees will get them the same time when Bold becomes available at retail outlets. . . like what happened with the 8700c launch . . .

You could be right about that. I was at that launch event as well and seem to recall that we actually got the 8700 devices after they were released to the general public (however it may have been at the same time). Bummer since the SF launch attendees got their Bolds the night of the event.

Perhaps we will be pleasantly surprised this week?

Thanks for the update Tazman. That's great news and I guess consistent with RIM and AT&T's promise that attendees will be "one of the first in the nation to receive the....Bold" prior to the wide release on 11/4.

When I called up the Bold Event Planning number, the lady said they are being shipped out today and at best will be delivered tomorrow.

Thought I'd add a confirmation.

Did she indicate whether shipping's thru FedEx or UPS?

No. There was no indication as to which carrier would be used.

GOT IT!

My admin just dropped it on my desk. Haven't yet cracked the box but it's the AT&T retail packaging. No special packaging like launch parties of year's past.

Anyone else get theirs yet?

Got it this AM . . . Retail packaging . . . I sure miss the special edition packaging from previous Launch events....But, what the heck, it's free . . .

Thank you AT&T and RIM for keeping your word that NYC Launch Event Attendees will be among the first to get their hands on the BB Bold. . .
